I wanted to share this family photo of Lillian Williams with the community. Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Date: 1901.  This was taken just before her marriage when she was still Lillian Bosset.  She was a stage actress in Philadelphia.  She died early in 1907 from tuberculosis just after the birth of her son (my great-uncle), so was never able to enjoy motherhood.  She was 25.

What a lovely woman!  I love her hat.  What a tragedy that she died at such a young age.  Thank you for sharing her picture and her story.

Did you know that there are categories for people who died from TB?  You may want to consider adding [[Category: Pennsylvania, Deaths from Tuberculosis]] to Bobbie's profile.

I forgot to mention the tiny waist she had! Very fashionable in its day.
